We have a LG-R590 laptop and an AirTies 5343 WLAN router at home. When the router broadcasts the SSID of the wireless home network I cannot connect to the network automatically, I have to connect to the network as if its SSID were hidden.
When I set the router to hide the SSID of the home network the wireless network browser in Mint MATE is able to see and connect to the network. However, in this case the SSID is hidden in Windows as expected and leads to undesired effort to get connected to the internet on other computers, and I am concerned about this since my parents are not that much tech-savvy. I have provided a screenshot of the modem settings (saved) when the computer is able to locate and connect to the network on Linux Mint 16 MATE. How can I restore default behaviour on this computer so that it sees and is able to connect to the network when SSID is broadcasted?
